He wasn't Ozil's backup and he was never expected to be, they don't play the same position. Sahin was supposed to be Alonso's substitute/replacement, or play alongside him replacing Khedira/Diarra. He was injuried when he came to Madrid and took him way longer than expected to recover, and when he did recover he never managed earned Mourinho's trust and find any kind of rythm. However, he's publicly said he doesn't want to leave the club and he will fight for a spot next season. Personally, I would rather have Granero fill that role.
